German pianist Stefan Aaron has hauled his bright orange piano on top of the Great Wall of China to perform a song he wrote about the world's biggest wonder.

Aaron, who chose orange because it gives out positive energy, says it was an amazing experience, "As a songwriter I have to tell you it is very special when you write a song about the Great Wall and you actually play it for the first time on this location. It's like a dream-come-true thing and look at the view here, I'm speechless."

The performance is part of the pianist's Orange Piano Tour to fly his orange piano to unusual international locations.
